What is the fair?

It's your chance to be a scientist or a technologist. Scientists do experiments to find about their world. Technologists solve problems that people have. This website contains all of the information you need to get started…

The goal of The Marlborough Lines Science and Technology Fair is to promote in youth, a greater interest in science and technology.

Some history

The first science fair in New Zealand was held in Auckland in 1959. The Royal Society, a group of eminent scientists, have been involved since 1960.

In Marlborough the Science Fair has been an annual event since the 1960s and is now a partnership of Blenheim Lions, local school teachers, minor community sponsors and our major sponsor Marlborough Lines.
